This is a basic cheese scone recipe that I make that turns plain scones into a savoury cheese scone. Goes great warm with soup.

Makes: 12 scones

  • 50g butter
  • 2 cups self raising flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 200ml milk
  • 1/2 cup tasty cheese, grated
  • paprika, to taste

Preparation:15min  ›  Cook:10min  ›  Ready in:25min 

  1. Preheat an oven to 230 degrees C.
  2. Rub the butter with your finger tips into the flour and salt to form a breadcrumb type texture.
  3. Add enough milk into the flour to form a light dough then combine in the grated cheese.
  4. Turn the dough out onto a floured board and knead slightly. Cut out round scones. Sprinkle with more grated cheese if desired and paprika.
  5. Place on a floured tray and bake in the preheated oven for 10 minutes.
